Halloween Haulin'

It may not be the traditional Halloween activity, but this October I swapped the fake blood and cat ears for a girly spa and shopping break back at home with my mum and sister- hello sensible post student life! As I'd just had my first proper pay day I did treat myself to a few exciting beauty bits as well as some pretty things for my new flat which I thought I'd show you today (shoutout to Fred for making a cute furry background)...

MAC Paint Pot in 'Let Me Pop' / This cheeky high end purchase appeared in last month's wishlist so it's no wonder it's now appeared in my make up bag. It's every bit the perfect pinky copper long lasting cream shadow that I wanted and it does look so pretty all round the eyes so I can justify the £15 price tag. Yeahh I totally can...
L'Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Water / After spending a great deal of time and money ordering copious amounts of Bioderma from Ebay I'm so happy I can now pick up this L'Oreal micellar water for under a fiver from Boots. And not only does it remove my make up really well, it purifys the skin too! 
Model's Own 'Utopia' & 'Snowflakes' / After using up nearly a whole bottle of Essie 'Fiji' over the Summer I was desperate to find a similar neutral pastel shade for the winter months and I think lilac based 'Utopia' is the answer. Mix this with 'Snowflakes' and you have the ultimate frosty Christmas nail combo. 
Barry M Matte Nail Paint in 'Crush' / I saw this on the Barry M Stand and figured it was about time I joined the matte nail hype. I'm usually all about the glossy talons but it is all about the matte this season and I really love the deep berry colour. Plus, for only £3.99 you can't go wrong! Bravo Barry M.
'Christmas Cookie' Yankee Candle / In the winter months I love spending my evenings snuggled up with a book and a candle and now it's November it has to be one with a festive scent. This Christmas Cookie Yankee candle was an obvious choice because it looks cute and smells good enough to eat #nomnomnom 
Fenwick 'just for you' Coaster / Another little new room purchase, this was only £1.39 from Fenwicks and I thought it'd be a super cute thing to put my morning cuppa on. All I need to do now is to convince someone to bring it to me...

Did you do any Halloween Haulin'?


  1. The Paint Pot and the nail polishes look so pretty!

  2. Oooo yankee candles! I luuurve yankee candles, i always have to give them a sniff whenever i'm passing a clintons or a big boots :) my favourite is salted caramel, it's amazing! But I do like the fruity one...not sure on the name. The nail polishes look great, your colour choices are lovely! i've heard amazing things about the barry m matte nail polishes, good luck with them!


  3. Christmas Cookie smells amazing it is one of my favourite scents. The L'Oreal Micellar Water is really good at removing makeup x
